Foreword
People love video games, and that’s not always a foul thing. Whether played on a hand-held device, a computer, or a TV, the games may provide hours of quiet fun. The games may boost PC skills and better eye-hand coordination. One field of study demonstrated that surgeons who play video games perpetrate fewer surgical mistakes than do their non-game-playing counterparts.
Video games are emotionally “secure.” When a person makes an error, no one else recognizes (contrary to the public abasement of, say, striking out in a real world ball game). And as each mistake made in a video game helps the player determine the particular action required to advance the next time, the player acquires the satisfaction of steadily bettering and finally winning.
Bad downsides…
But video games bear some adult downsides. Besides being really expensive, a lot of popular games involve graphic sex and violence. Maybe most distressful, they may be exceedingly addictive. Any person may become “addicted” to video games, and people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder appear to be at particular risk.
A lot of them have pitiful social or athletic skills, and this doesn’t matter in the domain of video games. Such games level the field for people with AD/HD. And people annoyed by distractibility in real life are capable of acute focus (hyper focus) while playing. The video game “spell” is frequently so deep that the only way to acquire the player’s attention is to shake her or “go in her face.”
Do you discover yourself supervising how much time someone in your life or you spends with his Gameboy? Do you perpetually recommend him to switch off the X Box? Does the want to play video games dominate her or you life? Once the set has to be switched off, do you get angry? If so, the time has come to help this person or yourself.
Defeat Video Gaming Addictions!
Letting go of the virtual menace.

Chapter 1:
Admit You Have A Problem
Synopsis
Admit you have an issue- As cliché or cheap as it might sound, the opening move to recovery is to admit to yourself and other people that you have a problem.

Face The Problem
There are any measure of reasons why somebody will deny that he or she has an addiction problem. Some causes have to do with embarrassment or concealment owed to true or perceived results (like getting penalized at home or suspended from school). A few individuals are humiliated that they have an issue that they feel that they can’t control. They might feel bad about the things that they’ve done while focusing on the addiction.
There’s likewise a lot of stigma affiliated with addiction. Being labeled a ―addict‖ might have any number of social and psychological results for the addict, including lowering one’s self-respect, limiting one’s societal (e.g., being cut off from friends and loved ones), educational (i.e., being kicked out of school), or even occupational opportunities (e.g., not being employed at a local business).
A lot of times, individuals don’t wish to admit that they’ve an addiction as it will mean being forced to abandon something that they value or something they require to get by. But there are true repercussions if you don’t admit to having an issue. You may be subject to more examination by loved ones, friends, or individuals in the community that might result in societal consequences.
Likewise, many individuals believe they have their addiction ―under control,‖ but in most cases addictions gain command of you. And occasionally an acquaintance, family member, or teammate is the one who encounters the signs of trouble first.
How To Address The Situation;
The thing you need to do is be relentless and be prepared with many particular examples. They won’t prefer to hear it, so don’t provide them the choice. Fill your gasoline tank, get them in your auto for a road trip, and begin talking once you’re far enough away from the house that they won’t just hop out at a stop light and walk off. Don’t drive up to your destination till you’re through with the conversation.
If you aren’t a respected voice of reason to this individual already, it may help to get together with a friend who they see in this light. All the same, about the road trip thought: it works for me as I’m a person that doesn’t let emotion get to me, but if you recognize you can’t control your emotions and/or tears well enough to drive safely while having this conversation, don’t attempt it. Consider something else. Perhaps begin talking AT the destination.
Early in the discussion, bring up the information that they’ve changed since they began the addiction --> the addiction has impacted their behavior and brain --> as it’s impacted their brain, how may they expect to realize the differences? To recall what they were like before? To recall how they used to make do and be happy without the addiction? Reason with them.
Tell them specifically how they are different. Provide examples of situations you’ve witnessed when they acted in a manner that “just wasn’t them,” or note (repeatedly) that they’re not as keen, wide-eyed, or amusing as they used to be. Whatever the case might be. Most especially, remember to state, “You were a better individual before.”
You’ll have to recite and reword a lot, many times, in several ways, plenty, over and over and over again, and you’ll have to answer the same questions more than once, and the conversation will get around in circles, but don’t crumble. When you’re correct, you’re correct, and you have the truth on your side. If it turns into an argument, you win. At the very least, your friend won’t take addictions so lightly any longer.
Likewise, balance the toughness and assertion with real, truthful, listening. You may hear things you didn’t anticipate. A few may be the most truthful things you’ve ever heard, but others may be obvious efforts to change the subject. Connect everything back to your original point, and don’t roam too far from the subject till a resolution is accomplished.

Chapter 2:

One Day At A Time

Chapter 4:
Some Treatment Options

Synopsis
Video game addiction treatment centers are cropping up in nations like China, Republic of Korea, the Netherlands and the U.S. in an effort to supply help for video game addiction. Detox for video game addiction is planned to help video game addicts discover how to effectively eliminate their compulsive, habit-forming behaviors much like those addicted to gambling and/or alcohol abuse.
Video game addiction books supply helpful advice to video game addicts on how to circumvent computer and video game addiction, as well as crucial data for parents struggling with their children’s addiction to video games. Info in these books on video game addiction likewise discuss the increasing number of vehement video games and the adverse effects these games might have on youngsters and teens that parents might or might not be aware of.
New Developments
Ironically situated less than fifteen miles from Microsoft’s Redmond central office, there is a treatment center set on a 5-acre wooden retreat with a 3,500 sq ft craftsman house, red cedar tree houses, henhouses, and goat pens. For a humungous cost for the 45-day stay (including application, screening and treatment fees) Net and gaming addicts are severed from the web… cold turkey.
The facility states inpatient treatment for Net and gaming addiction includes working with a therapist, a recreation coach, yoga and work out instructors, nature hikes, house chores, career development and additional activities in an effort to ―reprogram‖ patients and free them of their addiction to the internet or gaming.
Even though Net addiction or video game addiction isn’t yet included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) doesn’t make these dependencies less serious and genuine, particularly in the lives and families impacted by the disorder.
Regrettably, this addiction isn’t recognized as a discriminate disorder by the American Psychiatric Association, and treatment isn’t covered by insurance. But there are a lot of treatment centers for the addiction in Republic of China, Republic of Korea and Taiwan — where the addiction is taken very earnestly — and a lot of psychiatric experts state it’s clear that the addiction is true and harmful.
The treatment center is run by psychotherapists who believe the net addiction and gaming are no less addictive than other apparently harmless activities, like gambling. However therapists have seen patients who are compulsive Net and gaming addicts to the point where they stop eating and sleeping the right way, risk losing their occupations, marriages and relationships are wasted, plus assorted potentially grave health problems (including death). The adverse effects of Net addiction or video game addiction can’t be ignored anymore – if you or your youngsters are showing symptoms of addiction, act today.
Treatment for video game addiction is like to detox for other addictions, with one crucial difference. Computers have gotten to be a crucial part of daily life, as well as many occupations, so compulsive gamers can’t just look the other way when they see a personal computer. It’s like a food dependency‖ You have to determine how to live with food.
As video game addicts can’t avoid computers, they have to determine how to utilize them responsibly. That implies no gaming. As for limiting game time to an hour a day that’s compared to an alcoholic stating he’s only going to drink beer.
The hardest part of treating video game addicts is that it’s a little bit harder to show someone they’re in trouble. Nobody’s ever been set in jail for being under the influence of [a game].‖ The key is to demonstrate to gamers they’re powerless over their addiction, and then instruct them on real-life exhilaration as opposed to game excitement.

Wrapping Up
What ought to be a fun diversion may become an all-consuming addiction if left ungoverned. Make certain you set limits on your children’s video game utilization. Do not think of it as denying your youngsters something. Instead, think of it as training healthy habits. While video game addiction doesn’t appear in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fourth Edition (DSM-IV) unreasonable and unhealthy video game habits are something that’s received increased attention in the past several years.
It’s difficult to deny that a few individuals (whether they’re youngsters, teens, or grownups) play video games far too much and that it may negatively impact their functioning and success outside from the glare of the monitor.
Naturally, not everybody becomes addicted to video games. Net games are enjoyed by millions of individuals around the world as a way to unwind, interact with acquaintances, and for simple entertainment uses.
All the same, it’s becoming clear that there are those who lose control of their gaming habits. For these people, video games (especially net multiplayer games) take center stage in their lives.
Work performance might suffer due to lengthy late night gaming sessions. School grades might drop as a result of giving more attention to video games than studying. Relationships might deteriorate as one partner feels neglected and more insignificant that his or her partner’s latest game obsession. The more time an individual spends playing video games, the less time there is for the important individuals in his or her life. Face-to-face human contact is more and more sacrificed in favor of the game. As a consequence, the individual might experience social isolation, lost friendships, and loneliness.
Hopefully this book has given you tools to deal with this particular addiction.

Foreword
At the finish of a day, when your brain is worn-out with the after
effects of tensions, stresses and pressures of daily life, there’s nothing
like a hot cup of tea and relaxing audio playing and maybe a video
with some beautiful pictures in the background. .A relaxation video or
audio can instantly put your mind at ease.
Delving Into Audio and Video Stimuli.

Chapter 1:
About Relaxing
The relaxation reaction is associated with physiological changes that are the opposite of the changes seen with the fight-or-flight reaction.
The relaxation reaction may be evoked utilizing relaxation methods, like audio, video, and meditation.
Regularly bringing on the relaxation reaction is most effective in improving daily living, and results in increased control over the
body’s responses to stress.
Relaxation audio and video results in changes in oxygen consumption, brain waves, lactate levels, etc – all indicating lowered
activity of the sympathetic nervous system. The pulse decreases by an average of 3 beats per minute and the respiration rate decreases. A restful state is accomplished. During audio or video relaxation techniques, the subject might not really feel much different or notice any changes. The physiological changes are occurring even so.
This means that whether or not you note any changes at the time, by doing relaxation techniques you get all of the physical and psychological advantages of the relaxation reaction, and are protected against the harmful effects of stress.
The utilization of audiovisual stimuli to alter states of consciousness isn’t new. Audio Visual Entrainment (AVE) is a subset of brainwave entrainment that uses tones to safely and gently guide the brain into various states of brainwave activity.
Altering brainwave activity has been demonstrated to assist in the management of psychological and physiological disorders.
Brainwaves change frequencies based on neural activity inside the brain when it processes signals from the sensory receptors like those of vision, touch, smell, taste and hearing. Each of our senses responds to stimulus from the environment and transmits that data to the mind.

Chapter 2:
About Audio and Video Stimuli
The senses of sight and hearing, by their very nature, supply a
favorable means for affecting brainwaves. By presenting audio and
visual stimulation to the brain, the brain will begin to resonate,
‘entrain’, or ‘follow’ at the same frequency as the stimulus.
This effect is generally referred to as brainwave entrainment (BWE),
or habituation, whereby the body and mind adapt to the stimulus.
Auditory or visual stimulation (AVS) may take an assortment of
forms, generating different subjective and clinical effects. Audio
Visual Entrainment, (AVE) involves organized, repetitive stimulation
at a particular frequency for a specific time period, and the frequency
of stimulation is reflected within the electroencephalography EEG.
By increasing the stimulation frequency, cognitive function might be
enhanced.
• Some of the advantages of AVE include:
• Reduces stress and provides deep relaxation
• Increases alertness
• Reduces hyperactivity
• Normalizes sleep patterns
• Betters memory
• Produces peak performance state
• Reduces depression and anxiety
• Learn more – learn faster – more adept at learning hard and
complex material due to increased dendritic outgrowth – more
neural connections make learning easier.
• Improve both long and short-term memory.
• Produce high efficiency, effortless “flow” states.
• Produce unprecedented recovery rates.
• Greatly reduce or eliminate chronic depression and anxiety.
• Eliminate or greatly reduce both chronic and transient pain.
• Increase the power of the immune system to overpower existing
diseases and boost its resistance to infection.
As ageing happens, the brain loses some of its neural circuitry due to
shrinking and a reduction in the number of dendrites. The power of
neurons to communicate thus decreases as these connections are
reabsorbed by the cell body with age or non-use.
Common symptoms (which may start as early as forty) include
forgetting the names of individuals, and then names of things and
facts, short-term memory deficits, trouble following instructions and
memorizing material.
However, we may slow down or even reverse this process, by
providing multi-sensorial stimulation to our brains.

Wrapping Up
Relaxation is a skill. This means that relaxation is something that may
be learned and practiced, it’s something we’re not necessarily just
born knowing how to do (not everybody knows how to relax), and we
often are not good at it at first.
Each person has the ability to learn how to relax, but not everyone
will relax the same way. However using a program that is both fun
and provides all the relaxing stimuli is a good way to start.

The Gamer’s Relief
The Ex-Gamer’s Ultimate Solution To Gaming Addiction

Chapter 1:
The First Step- Admitting There Is A Problem
Synopsis
There are a lot of assorted types of addictions, and a few might surprise you. There are dependencies out there that have nothing to do with alcohol or drugs. For instance, there are technology addictions like gaming addiction.
Most individuals truly do love gaming. The invention of fresh sorts of gaming systems have made it simpler for older and younger generations alike to know the benefits of gaming, including physical activity and amusement.
While gaming may be fun as well as entertaining, the reality is that they may negatively affect an individual’s life when the use becomes an addiction.

First Things First
Do you understand what you are able to do to ascertain whether or not somebody has a gaming addiction? Do you understand what steps you are able to take in order to curb an addiction to PC gaming or video gaming? It’s crucial to understand that you are able to find the info that you’re looking for from various resources including this book.
The gaming addiction issue is only getting worse due to the recent explosion of sites surrounding net gambling. Gaming addiction is seeming to really grow online. At this point, it’s become even harder to spot somebody who’s addicted to net gaming as the characteristics are different from individuals that are addicted to regular gaming and online gaming may be done away from crowds in your own home.
Video gaming addiction may involve any sort of game from shooters to World of Warcraft and additional massively multi-player net role playing games. It’s crucial to think about all the evidence if admitting whether or not you have a gaming addiction issue.
Admit you’ve a problem- As commonplace or cheap as it may sound, the first step to recovery is to acknowledge to yourself and other people that you have an issue.
There are any number of causes why someone will deny that he or she has a dependency issue. A few causes have to do with embarrassment or hiding things owed to true or sensed results (like becoming penalized at home or barred from school). Some individuals are embarrassed that they’ve an issue that they feel that they can’t contain. They may feel bad about the matters that they’ve caused while centering on the addiction.
There’s also a lot of stigma connected with addiction. Becoming labeled as a “addict” may have any number of social and psychological results for the user, including lowering one’s self-regard, limiting one’s social , educational , or even job opportunities.
Numerous times, people don’t want to admit that they’ve an addiction as it will mean having to forsake something that they value or something they have to have to manage. But there are genuine repercussions if you don’t acknowledge having a problem. You might be subject to more scrutiny by loved ones, acquaintances, or persons in the community that may result in social issues.
Likewise, a lot of people believe they’ve their addiction “in check,” but in many cases addictions gain mastery of you. And at times an acquaintance, loved ones, or mate is the one who finds the signs of trouble initially.
Acknowledge the reason.
Why do you do it? You have to be able to resolve that question. Is it to assist you in dealing with worries and stress? It might be hard for you to acknowledge that you have a habit, but you can’t alter what you don’t acknowledge.
What purpose does the conduct serve for you? If you’re a gamer, you’re not simply playing because it’s your job. Admit to yourself: I’m medicating myself for worries, depression and hurt. It numbs me to life.
Helping someone see they have a problem.
The thing you have to do is be persistent and be prepared with lots of specific illustrations. They won’t want to hear it, so don’t let them make the choice. Perhaps take a drive and start talking once you’re far enough away from the home that they won’t simply get out at a traffic light and walk away. Do not arrive at your destination till you’re done with the conversation.
If you aren’t a valued voice of reason to this person already, it might help to get together with a supporter who they regard in this light. However, about the drive idea: it works for me as I’m an individual that doesn’t let emotion get to me, however if you realize you can’t check your emotions and/or tears tolerably to drive safely while delivering this conversation, don’t try it. Consider something else. Possibly start talking AT the destination.
Early on in the discussion, bring up the reality that they’ve modified behavior since they started the addiction… the addiction has affected their conduct and brain …as it’s affected their mind, how might they expect to see the differences? To recall what they were like before? To remember how they used to manage and be happy without the addiction? Reason with them.
Tell them specifically how they’ve changed. Supply instances of situations you’ve witnessed when they acted in a fashion that “just wasn’t them,” or mention (repeatedly) that they’re not as discriminating, fun, or funny as they used to be. Whatsoever the case may be. Most importantly, remember to state, “You were a better person previously.”
You’ll have to say it and reword a lot, a lot of times, in various ways, plenty, again and over again, and you’ll have to reply to the same questions more than one time, and the conversation will go around in a circle, but don’t stop. If you’re correct, you’re correct, and you’ve the truth on your side. If it turns into a controversy, you win. At the very least, your friend won’t take dependencies so lightly anymore.
As well, balance the toughness and assertion with substantial, honest, listening. You might hear things you didn’t foresee. A few might be the most realistic things you’ve ever heard, but others might be obvious crusades to shift the subject. Join everything back to your original point, and don’t stray too far from the subject till a resolution is achieved.
You must at a conscious level, at a rational level that your addiction is unhealthy, yet you carry on and this baffles you. If you’re in denial about it, if you’re downplaying it, if you’re trivializing it, if you’re gypping yourself, then you’ll never get where you have to be.
If you can’t go through the day without a game controller, you might be medicating yourself for depression, anxiety or pain. You might need to count on other people to help you think rationally.

Chapter 3:
About Discipline
Synopsis
Will power is the might to subdue addiction. It’s the might to command or reject unnecessary or harmful impulses. It’s the might to arrive to a decision and follow it with persistence till its successful accomplishment.
It’s the inner power that overcomes the want to indulge in useless and worthless habits, and the inner durability that overpowers inner emotional and mental opposition for taking action. It’s one of the fundaments of success.

You Must be Disciplined
Self-discipline is the affiliate of will power. It empowers with the toughness to hold on in whatever one does. It bestows the power to withstand hardships and bothers, whether physical, emotional or mental. It dishes out the power to reject immediate gratification, in order to get something better, but which calls for work and time.
Everyone has inner, unconscious, or partly conscious impulses; making them say or do things they later regret stating or doing. On several occasions individuals don’t think before they speak or act.
By developing these 2 powers, one becomes witting of the inner, subconscious urges, and derives the power to eliminate them when they’re not for his/her own good.
These 2 forces help us to pick our behavior and reactions, instead of being dominated by them. Their possession won’t make life dull or boring. On the contrary, you’ll feel more powerful, in command of yourself and your surroundings, happy and gratified.
How many times have you felt too weak, lazy or shy to achieve something you wished to do? You’re able to acquire inner strength, initiative and the power to arrive at decisions and abide by them. Believe me; it isn’t hard to develop these 2 forces. If you’re sincere and are willing to become stronger, you’ll certainly succeed.
There’s a misconception in the public mind regarding self-control. It’s erroneously thought to be something arduous and hard, and that one has to exert and tense the body and brain when conveying it. It’s a totally improper concept.
This is among the reasons why people avoid utilizing it, though they’re conscious of its benefits. They acknowledge the fact that the utilization of will power in their life and affairs will greatly assist them and that they have to fortify it, yet they do nothing about it.
Self-control gets stronger by holding off and not letting in the expression of insignificant, unnecessary and unhealthy ideas, feelings, actions and reactions.
If this saved energy isn’t allowed expression, it’s stored inside you like a battery, and it becomes available at the time of need.
By practicing suitable exercises, you develop your powers the same way, as an individual who trains his/her muscles in order to strengthen them.

Chapter 4:
Developing Will power
Synopsis
An great method for developing and bettering these abilities is to execute particular actions or activities, which you would rather avoid doing due to laziness, putting things off, weakness, shyness, and so forth.
By doing something that you don’t like doing or are too lazy to achieve, you overcome your subconscious resistance, school your brain to obey you, beef up your inner powers and gain inner strength.
Muscles get stronger by resisting the power of weights. Inner strength is accomplished by overpowering inner resistance.
Remember, beefing up one of these powers, automatically beefs up the other one.

Exercise
Here are a few exercises:
A. You’re seated in a bus or train and an old man or woman, or a pregnant woman walks in. Stand and give up your seat even if you wish to remain seated. Do this not merely because it’s polite, but as you’re doing something that you’re reluctant to do. In this way you’re overcoming the resistance of your body, brain and feelings.
B. There are dishes in the sink that have to be washed off and you postpone washing them for later. Get up and wash them at once. Don’t let your laziness overcome you. When you realize that in this way you’re developing your self-control, and if you’re convinced of the significance of self-control in your life, it will be simpler for you to do whatsoever you have to do.
C. You come home dog-tired from work and sit in front of the TV, as you feel too lazy and fatigued to go and wash. Don’t obey the want to simply sit, but go and get a shower
D. You may know your body requires some physical exertion, but rather you keep on sitting doing nothing or watching a movie. Get up and walk, run or do a different exercise.
E. Do you like your coffee with sugar? Then for a whole week decide to drink it without sugar. You like to drink 3 cups of coffee each day? For a week, drink only 2.
F. At times, when you wish to say something that is not relevant, decide not to say it.
G. You’ve a desire to eat something not too good for you. For the sake of the drill refuse the want.
H. If you identify yourself thinking insignificant, unneeded, damaging thoughts, attempt to develop lack of interest in them, by considering of their futility.
I. Overcome your laziness. Convince yourself of the importance of what is to be achieved. Convince your brain that you gain inner strength when you act and achieve things, despite laziness, reluctance or mindless inner resistance.
J. Never state that you can’t follow the above exercises, as you certainly may. Be relentless no matter what. Motivate yourself by thinking of the significance of executing the exercises, and the inner power and strength you’ll acquire.
Trying to attempt too many exercises when you’re still a beginner, may end in disappointment. It’s better to begin with a couple of simple exercises initially, and then bit by bit step-up their number and move to the more arduous exercises.
Most of these exercises might be practiced anyplace and at anytime, and you don’t have to commit particular times for them. They’ll train and grow your inner forcefulness, enabling you to utilize it whenever you need it.
If you practice weight lifting, running or aerobics, you fortify your muscles, so that when you have to move or carry something heavy for example, you’ve the strength for it. By studying French daily, you’ll be able to talk French if you visit France. It’s the same with self-control and self-discipline; by strengthening them, they become available for your use whenever you need them.
If for the sake of a drill, you quit doing something that you generally do, and overcome the inner resistance pertaining to it, you may resume doing it, if it is not adverse.
For example, if you love drinking OJ, and for the sake of a drill you shift to drinking apple juice, after doing so for some time and after it makes no big difference to you, you may go back to drinking orange juice, if you still love it. The point here is to formulate inner strength, not making life difficult for you or continue doing things you don’t like to do.

What should a fun diversion might get to be an all-consuming addiction if left unbridled. Be sure you set limits on your youngster’s video game utilization. Don’t think of it as denying your kids something.
Rather, think of it as training fit habits. While video game addiction doesn’t come up in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, excessive and unhealthy video game habits are something that’s obtained increased attention in the past several years.
It’s hard to deny that a few people (whether they’re kids, teens, or adults) play video games far too much and that it might negatively affect their functioning and success outside from the glare of the monitor.
Naturally, not everyone gets addicted to video games. Net games are enjoyed by 1000000s of individuals around the world as a way to unwind, interact with friends, and for simple entertainment uses.
However, it’s becoming clear that there are those who lose control of their gaming habits. For these individuals, video games (particularly net multiplayer games) take center stage in their lives.
Work performance may suffer due to lengthy late night gaming sessions. School grades may drop as a result of giving more attention to video games than reading.
Relationships may deteriorate as one mate feels neglected and more insignificant that his or her partner’s latest game fixation. The more time a person expends playing video games, the less time there is for the crucial individuals in his or her life.
Face-to-face human contact is more and more sacrificed in favor of the game. As a result, the person may experience social isolation, lost friendships, and loneliness.
Hopefully this book has given you instruments to deal with this certain addiction.

Foreword
People love gaming, and that’s not always a disgusting thing. Whether played on a hand-held platform, a PC, or a TV, the games may supply hours of quiet fun. The games may advance PC skills and greater eye-hand coordination.

And as every mistake made in gaming helps the player learn the specific action needed the next time, the player gets the satisfaction of steadily improving and finally winning.
All the same gaming bears a few downsides. Besides being truly expensive, many in demand games involve vivid sex and violence. Possibly most worrisome, they may be exceedingly habit-forming. Any person could become “addicted” to gaming, and people with AD/HD appear to be at specific risk.
Does the want to play video games rule your life? When the set has to be switched off, do you become mad? If so, the time has come to assist this yourself.

Chapter 4:
Why Go Social?
Synopsis
We know about the hurtful effects of playing video games. Well it’s true that studies suggest that a firm diet of games may lead to asocial behavior. And this research, along with horse sense, is precisely why a lot of people down games.

A Social Theme
The issue with this is that there is a more recent body of research that spotlights social benefits of gaming. And this research has a few crucial implications.
If playing games may lead to asocial behavior, it makes sense to suggest that playing prosocial games may lead to prosocial behavior. And research supports this proposition. For instance,
While these studies surely supported the hypothesis being tested in one study, the prosocial behavior being displayed was fairly trivial.
All the same, in a different experiment in a series of studies, the researchers found a much more powerful demonstration of this effect. In that study, players played a prosocial or neutral video game and were then exposed to a situation that really tested their willingness to help other people.
Specifically, the experimenters smartly staged an encounter in which a distressed ex-boyfriend walked into the lab during the experiment to face his ex-girlfriend who happened to be the experimenter.
Naturally, this was all part of the study; however to the player it seemed as if the experiment has simply been interrupted by a disgruntled ex-boyfriend. The ex-boyfriend ignored the players and began to harass the experimenter (his ex-girlfriend).
The results were pretty striking. 10 out of 18 players who had been playing the prosocial game stepped in to help the experimenter. Yet, only 4 out of the 18 players who had been playing the neutral game stepped in.
Put differently, several minutes of playing a silly but prosocial game in which you maneuver cute little animals safely to an exit seemed to increase the likelihood that individuals would stick their necks out for a stranger.
Why is this research significant? And why do we need more of it?
It’s perhaps obvious as to why it was and is still significant to examine the potential neurological, psychological, and social effects of exposure to video games. It’s likewise vital to more seriously examine the effects of socially positive gaming experiences.
1st, such research might further challenge the claim that video games are inherently asocial by demonstrating that it truly devolves on the game.
2nd, I think succeeding research needs to think about the fact that video games are increasingly complex, and not merely asocial or prosocial, violent or non-violent. Consider this. For the last couple of decades, despite the dangers and addictions, the popularity of video games has expanded.
There is an empirical link between violent gaming and belligerent thoughts and behavior. There are surely many games like this, but an increasing number of games with violent content center on adding moral dilemmas and social consequences.
Therefore, it’s possible that the effects of video games on conduct are more complex than once thought.
Concisely, like all social influences, video games may be neutral, good, foul, and frequently a mix of all of the above. Games have been around for some time now and have become one of the most popular forms of amusement.
The main point being… if you have to play… make sure to play games and link up with social groups with themes that boost your social awareness.

Chapter 5:
Affirmations for Abstinence
Synopsis
All addictions might be dangerous and adverse to the addicted individual and other people around him; even so, video game addiction might be especially detrimental to youngsters.

Some Help
Video games are becoming increasingly popular with youngsters of young ages, which in turn may raise the likelihood that these youngsters will develop addictions to video games.
What is more, playing violent games may be associated with a tendency to behave more aggressively, although the data is inconclusive about the cause and effect nature of this relationship.
Utilize affirmations to help.
 “I am self-asserting and persuasive in my life.”
 “I approach individuals and engage them in conversations.”
 “I am a master at achieving tasks.”
 “I’m disciplined and self-reliant in following my addiction program.”
Although numerous researchers advocate the position that video games induce violent behavior in youngsters and grownups, there are likewise many researchers who support the opposite belief, which is that video games purge one’s want to act violently and thus cut down the amount of violence in which a person will engage.
Additional detrimental effects of video games include taking time away from studies or homework and diminished social skills. In the last analysis, despite possible detrimental effects of excessive video game playing, there are benefits to playing video games in moderation.
For instance, video games may improve spatial abilities, the ability to produce and apply multiple strategies, and may help develop critical analyzing techniques.
Due to the nature of video games, psychological, social, and neurological factors have all been affiliated with excessive video game playing.

The best times to review your affirmations are first thing in the morning time, during the day, and prior to you retiring for the night.
Utilize affirmations while mediating. After relaxing into a deep, quiet, meditative state of mind, imagine that you’ve achieved health and wellness and know how to have optimum living. Imagine yourself in the physical setting or surroundings that you’d like, the house that you enjoy and find comforting, quieting your soul and receiving appreciation and appropriate recompense for your efforts. Add any additional details that are essential for you, like the physical things you wish to change, the amount of stress reduction to achieve, etc.
Try to get a feeling in yourself that this is possible; experience it like it was already happening. In short, imagine it exactly the way you’d like it to be, as if it were already so!
Try standing in front of a mirror and use affirmations while looking into your own eyes. If you can, repeat them out loud with passion. This is a powerful way to change your limiting beliefs very quickly.
If you discover it hard to believe an affirmation will occur, add “I select to” to the affirmation. “I select to have optimum living,” for example, or, “I select to have less stress in my life.”
Attach favorable emotions to your affirmations. Consider how accomplishing your goal will make you feel, or consider how good it feels to know that you’re succeeding at optimum living. Emotion is a fuel which makes affirmations stronger.
If you find yourself merely parroting the words of your affirmations, rather than centering on their meaning, change affirmations. You’re able to still affirm the same goals or features, naturally, but rephrasing your affirmations can regenerate their effectiveness.
Gratitude is a kind of affirmation: One that states the following: “I enjoy the health and wellness in my life and trust that more will come my way”.

Gaming Addiction Group Ground Rules
How To Get The Most Out Of Counseling And Groups For Gaming Addiction

Chapter 1:
Gaming Addiction Group Basics
Synopsis
The American Medical Association (AMA) states that as a rule of thumb, people who spend more than 6 hours a day on the computer playing video games are addicted compulsive gamers.

The Basics
Symptoms of game addiction are,
* preoccupation with gaming
* craving more time to play video games
* drop in performance at work or school
* feeling ecstatic world gaming
* forgets about time when gaming
* goes into depression when not gaming
* lies about playing video games
* problems at work or at school
* social withdrawal from friends and family
* spends more than 6 hours online per day
Physical symptoms of gaming addiction are backache, dry eyes, headache, neckache, weight loss, and weight gain, sleeping disorder, poor personal hygiene and carpal tunnel syndrome.
The right way of approaching a loved one that is suspected to have gaming addiction is by being sensitive to them. Tell them the facts about their behavior and social solitary confinement. Try and get expert medical treatment as soon as possible.
The most effective treatment for video game addiction is psychotherapy and medication. Parents and loved ones can also lend support by participating in family or group therapy.

Chapter 2:
One On One Counseling
Synopsis
One of the most effective treatments for addiction that involves personal behavioral problems is one on one counseling. This type of treatment gives the patient privacy and confidentiality and more freedom to express themselves without fear of public scrutiny and humiliation.
Face to Face
The foundation of all effective treatment for medical conditions is the personal application of the appropriate approach to the specifics of the individual’s medical or psychological needs.
This type of treatment is specifically catered for one on one counseling.
Counseling techniques would include active listening, body language, psychotherapy and expressing one self. These therapy sessions are private and confidential between the patient and medical expert.
It becomes easier for a patient to express themselves and for feedback on feelings and emotions.
There is an exception with gaming addiction as the therapist or counselor needs to understand the video games to be able to treat the patient.
They have to understand why the patient might be fixated on a certain character or certain level of the game to be able to relate to the patient’s addiction.
That means it is much harder to treat a gaming addiction than other addictions as there are hundreds of games on the web in comparison to alcoholism or drug addiction. Each game has its unique features and characters.
For children with this addiction, therapeutic boarding schools and wilderness camp will be ideal to get them off this addiction and start experiencing the realities of life.

Chapter 3:
Family Counseling
Synopsis
Most people attest to the fact that getting counseling as a family is more helpful to the gambling addict then going through the process alone. With the involvement of the family, more things can be understood and the cooperation of all can be counted upon.
Including Family
Gambling is basically known for its very solidarity connotations thus having to go through the process of trying to beat the habit certainly presents a lot of challenges due to the fact it is mostly based on the solidarity issues to start with.
Therefore being able to get the support of family in the form of the willingness on the part of the family to participate in counseling session would certainly be a plus point and a step in the right direction to beating the addiction habit.
As a family unit it would be helpful to the addict if everyone is able to recognize and accept the fact that there is indeed a gambling habit present within the individual, and then be willing to take the necessary steps toward finding solutions to help overcome this negative indulgence with some level of success.
This would then ensure there is less likelihood of any member of the family expressing condemnation and discouragement in any way that will leave the addict feeling rejected and dejected.
Also family members are usually the ideal source of primary support that an addict can usually hope to count upon, due to the fact that they are usually in direct contact with the individual for most of the person’s daily life.
This will help them keep an every on the individual and also help to reinforce the commitment to beating the gambling habit whenever the urge to gamble surfaces. Most addicts will eventually come round to appreciating such support even if they initially feel stifled by the intrusion.

Chapter 4:
About Online Gamers Anonymous
Synopsis
Most of these platforms are designed around the need to extend help to those seeking to rid themselves of the online gaming addiction without actually wanting to go public about their individual addictions.

Online
The main idea for most of these groups would be to have some sort of self help fellowship sessions that will allow those participating to share various aspects about the online gaming addictions.
There usually take on the form of both the negative and the positive elements all parties have experienced with the intention of allowing everyone participating, the chance to be able to relate to each other without being judged or ridiculed in any way.
The most common problems that almost everyone relates to would be the over indulgence of excessive online game playing of any sort. This ideal platform provides the necessary help from those who understand the addiction and are able to relate to the individual’s struggle and also understand the apparent triumphant feelings these indulgences provide.
For those who are not online gaming addicts, trying to provide support may be quite difficult as they would not be able to fully understand and accept the hold such online gaming activities have on the individual.
This will eventually be quite frustrating for both parties as they would not really be able to help each other adequately, therefore it would be better to seek the help to platforms such as online gamers anonymous if complete understanding and support is to be gained.
Most of those involved in the online gaming anonymous session would be there for the purpose of being able to significantly provide elements such as open discussions on the actual addiction, support, education and even referrals should the need be apparent for professional intervention. The participants usually find strength in helping each other to overcome the addiction by reinforcing the desire to kick the habit.

Chapter 5:
Addressing Anxiety And Depression
Synopsis
A lot of the group support systems in place do actively broach the subject of anxiety and depression in connection with the gambling addiction. Here the ideas of trying to help the individual overcome such negative feelings that are brought on by the gambling habit are addressed in a very open and non judgmental way.
The Issues
Most people would be able to find a connection between the actual depression and anxiety issues that are brought on by the gambling and vice versa.
However tacking this alone would be quite a feat and would probably cause the individual to eventually give up and give in to the gambling habit all over again.
This of course is not the main intention of bring light to the connections, but is actually one way of making the individual aware of just how damaging the gambling habit has become.
One of the reasons it has been hard to separate the anxiety issues and the close connection it has to the gambling habit would lie in the fact that the gambling addiction is very much a rather lonely, isolating and demoralizing disorder, thus the need for the support group would present the ideal platform for understanding and eventual support sought.
The compulsiveness of the gambling addiction act would further create the stress and chaos that causes the individual to be despondent, experience lack of sleep, hopelessness, helplessness, low self esteem, sadness and even suicidal thoughts in more extreme cases.
The group counseling session will help the individual to understand and acknowledge that there is a very real possibility of being able to look toward a better future sometime down the road if the commitment to beat the gambling addiction is complete and evident. This will allow the individual to at least have a glimpse of what might be possible if the resolve is evident to beat the habit.

Chapter 6:
Looking To The Future Of Being In Control
Synopsis
Group counseling is a great way to help to beat the gambling addiction. This is mainly because the individual will be able to able to express all the feelings and thoughts without the worry of being judged or looked down upon. This is definitely a plus point when it comes to using this platform to attempt to curb the gambling habit.
Looking Forward
Through the group counseling style the individual is able to look forward to the support generated from the group structure and will always be present should the need arise for calling upon this support.
The individual would be more comfortable knowing that there is a re course available, should he or she feel the pull to indulge in the gambling act again.
This also provides an ideal platform for the recovering gambling addict, where there is no need to feel isolated as the mere presence of the group support will be able to give the individual confidence to look positively towards a gambling free life.
While making a conscious effort toward being in better control over the future without gambling the individual can also be certain of the fact that through the various exercises experienced to be rid of the gambling addiction, the individual would have come to terms with the addiction mindset and thus successfully start the journey towards recovery without looking back.
This acceptance phase is usually designed to allow the individual to understand the reason for the gambling indulgence and to work towards avoiding it in the future.
Wrapping Up
Part of the positive future would also be to include some form of accountability that will help to further cement the resolve of the individual to avoid the gambling habit indefinitely. This is also one way of celebrating the success of beating the gambling habit among like minded people.

Self Help Tips To Beat Your Gaming Addiction

Chapter 1:
Gaming Addiction Basics
Synopsis
Addiction in any form is a chronic, but treatable, brain disorder. People who have an addiction cannot control their need for alcohol, drugs, tobacco, gambling and even in the face of negative health, social or legal consequences. This lack of control is the result of chemical changes in the brain and those changes, in turn, cause behavior changes.
The Basics
Video game addiction is a new concept of addiction with the introduction of video games in the last 20 years or so. It is considered to be a psychological addiction, as opposed to a physical one and a person who lives with this type of addiction feels compelled to spend a lot of time playing video games alone or with friends.
The most addictive types of video games are massive multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPG) and anyone can have access to them on the web.
This type of play involves the participants taking on the identity of a character in the game which can be private or public. For private game rooms, participants are invited by the host.
A key is required to enter this room to participate. For public game rooms, anyone can enter and participate. Many people who are heavily involved in games like World of Warcraft and RuneScape are at risk of developing a video game addiction.
Over time, the addicted person’s world starts to become smaller as they isolate themselves from social links with people in the real world and spend most of their free time playing these games.
Other signs of video game addiction include the following:
Spending several hours each day playing video games

Neglecting work or family responsibilities in order to play
Using sick or vacation days to get more time to play video games
Neglecting to eat, sleep, or bathe in order to play • Feeling angry or depressed if you can’t play video games.

Chapter 2:
Make The Decision To Change
Synopsis
To overcome an addiction, you have to take some measures yourself. The first is to admit that you have an addiction problem. Whether it is drugs, alcohol, gambling or video games. You have to recognize that you have all the symptoms of addiction and need help. When you have convinced yourself that you are addicted and need help, only then can you start on the path of recovery.
Decide

With this method you will be put on a program that will involve medical prescriptions as well as a change of lifestyle and hobbies.
For cases that are not so severe, you need to get support from friends and family to overcome your addition problem. You have to be open with them and tell them about your addiction.
When they know that you want to stop the addiction, they can help by ensuring that you spend more time with them doing other interesting things like going to the movies, playing physical games that you like, visiting interesting places, starting new hobbies etc.
You can also help yourself by ensuring that you spend more time with family and friends. Make them the priority in your life and you will be spending more time with them and doing new things with them.
By doing so, you will find that you have less time to spend on your addiction and will soon lose the craving for it. As you start having interest in other new things, your addiction will soon be a thing of the past and you can move on.

Chapter 3:
Get Rid Of The Temptations
Synopsis
In order to overcome an addiction, you have to recognize the temptations of the addiction.
Get A Grip
When you know what are the temptations to the addiction you can try to avoid them. To do so you need self control. Most addiction happens due to failures of self control.
Executive control is the ability to control unwanted behaviors. It also refers to a collection of cognitive functions such as attention, planning, memory, initiating actions and inhibiting them.
When our impulses get the better of us, a failure in executive control is often the cause and blame. These failures can be diminished by training our working memory.
It is believed that people with less working memory have poor executive functioning and training working memory improves executive control.
Working memory is at work when the brain is busy working on analysis of what you are doing. That means if you are doing or experiencing a new hobby or interest, your working memory is also functioning and is in control. No time for failures to creep in. Less chance to be tempted back onto the addiction.
You can also help yourself by ensuring that you ask for assistance from family and friends. They can assist you by ensuring that you spend as little time as possible by yourself.
This will help eliminate temptations and cravings for your addiction. They can also help you in taking up new hobbies and interests which will all contribute in enhancing your working memory.
As time goes by, you might start to like some of these new hobbies or interests and totally forget about your addiction. Spend more time doing these new healthy interests. When this happens you are now on the road to recovery. Take the time to thank all family and friends for their support and assistance.

Chapter 4:
Get Support From Family And Friends
Synopsis

Friends can also play a big part in your recovery. They can involve you in new interests, hobbies and adventure. With all these new events happening, you will have less time to brood on your addiction and temptations.
You will find that your new interests will start to take up more and more of your free time and this will start you on the road to recovery from your addiction.
Be more open with new friends and interests. Get to experience new things with friends and family. You might even get addicted to a new hobby that is healthy and beneficial.
There are many healthy hobbies like cycling, futsal, cooking and an endless list of other hobbies and interests.

Chapter 5:
Get Involved In Life
Synopsis
To stop doing something that is taking a toll on you in terms of finances, time, health and family and friends, you have to focus on a new chapter of your life that involves new friends, new interests and family. Most addiction puts a strain on a person’s health, finances, social standing with friends and family.

The reason why some people are still single is because they do not like to socialize. When you are not involved in society, you get forgotten and remain lonely.
This is not much different from a person who is addicted to video games. These types of gamers spend almost all of their awake time in front of the computer playing their favorite video games. They shun away from friends and family.

Imagine a live without all these wonderful moments. It is very sad and lonely. Change it today.

Chapter 1:
Adventure Game Basics
Synopsis
The genres of video games had categorized the game on its own mechanics including other details. Among these video game genres or categories, there are 2 well known genres that are most discussed. These are the Role Playing games and Action/Adventure games.
They were around for a long period of time. Each of them has been working on game and plot mechanics, along with one’s respective strength.
But this time, people are becoming more indulged with adventure games. There are various aspects surrounding this subject and it is time to have a clear understanding about the reason behind other persons’ great fascination and involvement in this genre.
Adventure Game Genre
The video game category action/adventure is more about game plays compared to what it does on a story. Though, its plot elements should not be undermined. Other developers crafted an in depth story but retained the action/adventure game elements.
The play’s main element exists in adventure games. This is because people grasp each moment they make. It makes even more entertaining since the player gets immersed in the world of video gaming while he plays.
Many games within this genre allowed higher interactivity with their plot and characters. For this reason, this category expanded in mechanics. Players can come up with classical adventure elements and get engaged in combat through a button. Various games under this category got well-developed plots making the game experience more exciting. Through the combination of plot elements and interactivity, the gaming experience gets more than a button mashing.
What is an Action-Adventure Game?
Action-adventure games are also called as “arcade adventure games”. These are the video game designed with combined adventure game genre elements with several elements of action games. This is considered as the most diverse and broadest gaming genre. It may involve a lot of games that can be categorized under some more specific genres.
Action-adventure has been the hybrid genre. Thus, its definition is too exclusive making it the broadest video game genre. Most of the time, pure adventure video games are situational problems that player need to solve, using no or little action only.
Adventure Game Category Salient Features
Action/Adventure games have distinct elements and features that set it apart from other video game categories. However, there are some misconceptions about it. People usually take it literally by thinking that it is all about combat, action and endeavors. The truth is that adventure games involve series of puzzle-solving associated with calm and reclined approach. Find out its features to figure out what it is really all about.
 Setting, Themes and Story
This video game genre emphasizes a single player experience that is widely story-driven. It is commonly set in the immerse environment, which is usually a world of fantasy. It aims to optimize the settings from one chapter to another for more interest and more novelty experience. Thus, its character development is following literary emotional and personal growth conventions than abilities or powers affecting gameplay.
 Puzzle-solving
Adventure/action games are comprised of different puzzles like decoding messages, exploring or finding new locations, using and finding items, and opening many locked doors. Puzzle solving unlocks access into new game world areas while it reveals the game story even more.
 Conversation and Dialogue
These adventure games got strong storylines that are incorporated with essential dialogue. At times, they make use of narration or recorded dialog from some voice actors.
Players can engage any non-player character through selecting the pre-written dialog line from the menu. This triggers the response coming from a game character. Such conversations will be designed as the tree structure, in which players decide between every dialog branch to pursue.
 Success, Failure and Goal
The main adventure game goal is to complete the assigned puzzle or quest. Higher score means the player will be given secondary goal. And of course, this is a sign of progress. The main adventure game failure condition which is inherited from the action-oriented games is a player death.
With no clearly distinguished enemies from some genres, such inclusion in the games remains controversial. Most developers today are already taking extra steps or avoiding it in foreshadowing death.

Chapter 2:
Problem Solving
Synopsis
These adventure games put a great emphasis on problem-solving and puzzle-solving, with character interaction and plot secondary are called as “Myst-clones”, which are after a surrealistic adventure fantasy that had started this genre.
Most of the time, players are being casted as the fantasy world or now-deserted alien explore who should learn using ancient civilization language and bizarre machines to continue in this game.
Variety of Problem Solving Adventure Game Experiences
There are specific types of problem-solving adventure games that will provide distinct experiences and learning. They have been developed to make players enhance their resolving problem skills. Some incredible problem solving game experiences include:
1. Graphical adventure games that are composed of game series.
2. An independent series wherein the players have been virtually abandoned in an underground facility. In order to escape, they need to learn about the function of the mysterious machinery within the facility.
3. An adventure company wherein there are two characters that should navigate the abandoned alien place with various strange machines. They are going to resolve same puzzle together. However, most puzzles need piecing together alien language fragments to understand the instructions of fragments on how to run different machines in this game.
4. An adventure game where a player serves the castaway on a certain deserted island. Such kind of game has been loosely touched by “The Mysterious Island” novel.
Various claims regarding computer-based action adventure games have been productive environments in terms of general problem-solving ability development. These have been tested to the interactions of forty students with novel computer-based adventure games.
There were forty students who were tested in a particular study with their interactions with the computer-based adventure games. There were 2 sets of aspects that were thought to affect the problem-solving performance. These are the general problem solving strategies and domain-specific knowledge (schema).
Measures of the general strategy and domain-specific knowledge used have been applied and developed in this study. General strategies have been discovered to obtain essential influences on the performance for problem-solving. However, schema has been negatively connected to performance. Such findings’ implications for future research design and classroom practice was further discussed.

Chapter 3:
Your Items – Gathering and Using
Synopsis
Most adventure games are using inventory management screens as a unique gameplay mode. The players can pick up only a few objects within the game. Thus, a player is aware that only the most important objects should get picked.
Your Items
Since it is really challenging for the player to figure out if he missed a very important item, he would typically scour each scene for objects. A game that makes use of point-and-click device, player may be engaged in the systematic search called as the “pixel hunt”. Most games will get rid of this through highlighting an item and through snapping the cursor of the players to an object.
Most puzzles in these adventure games cover gathering and using items coming from the inventory. A player needs to integrate lateral thinking strategies in which they can include real-world extrinsic ideas regarding items in any unexpected way. They might have to carry objects in the inventory for longer duration just before proving useful. For this reason, it is usual for these adventure games to challenge the memory of the players. Here, the assessment can be survived through recalling the information from the previous part of the game. Players will seldom encounter time pressure when it comes to solving the puzzle. It is because they are more focused on the ability of the player to reason than to quick-think.
With these kinds of adventure game, players can experience searching for treasures and encounter randomly-generated challengers all throughout the way. Visuals have been perfect for such game style.

Chapter 4:
Puzzle Adventures
Synopsis
Adventure games are less known as puzzle adventures as well. Although many people are not aware of their main feature, they are going to know everything about them once they tried one or a few types of this game. They will get amaze that puzzle adventure games can be so exciting when these have been mixed up with arcade actions.
Definition
Puzzle adventures refer to the type of adventure games that indicate strong emphasis when it comes to logic puzzles, than traditional inventory puzzles. They usually emphasize on puzzle challenges that are self contained to resemble the logic puzzle games or toys of the children.
The game plot could be obscure while it might be conveyed by puzzle interaction. Most puzzle adventures have been played from the 1st person perspective along with a player that moves between pre-rendered 3D images. At times, these are mixed up with short videos or animations.
A Review on Puzzle Adventures
A puzzle adventure is considered as a misnomer since the game got no adventure elements or real story to speak of. It comes with a menu that has been designed to suggest or push exploration. However, every location turns out to be a jigsaw puzzle that should be resolved.

Chapter 5:
Role Playing
Synopsis
Adventure games are always a board-based role playing games. Every player got the character in which he can slowly improve all throughout the play. Role playing games or RPGs are typically confused with several games. There are various game pointers and styles to steer and try. They are present among each of these games.
As stated by One True Way, role-playing games have been played by several people who will sit around the table with a lot of dice, imagination, paper and munchies. Say, there are three to six players with a game master. Game master is responsible for controlling the game, telling the tale and fleshing out its world through request.
Players are going to try steering their characters to the world and tale. Brilliance and success will come from players’ involvement in the unconstrained and seemingly real world as well as well-developed story line.
This game usually lasts from three or more hours and split in various sessions.
Understanding Role-Playing Game Further
Role playing games are the games that require three important elements. The first element is the statistical character setup describing a particular aspect/skill of the character. The second element is the method of strengthening and increasing these statistics through level/experience system. The third one is the menu-driven combat system which makes use of aspects or skills of characters.
Other people are also giving RPGs with distinct definition. Most of the time, they tend to get confused in classifying a particular action/adventure game whether it is a role playing game or the other types of games. By simply identifying the presence of each element, it will be easier for the player to figure out the type of the game they play through.
Developing Great RPG Adventures
To make a great adventure, one should consider numerous components. Knowing your players will guide you in completing the RPG adventure you wish to design. Identify the type of stories and games that your target audience like. Keep in mind that your idea is usually second priority in designing your game adventure. Many game developers design their games which have been inspired by movies, game settings and books. It is a good idea and it can create an incredible flow of story. However, they may not be the main ingredient in making the best adventure.
By simply identifying the components needed for your game, you will be enlightened about their importance in developing your game.
The Hook
The Hook is considered as the most significant adventure aspect. There are times when you will get a bad plot and implausible characters. However, when you have this component, you can proceed smoothly with the game.
Keep in mind that role playing games have been totally distinct among other media. The hook applied in RP adventures might have not associated with adventure itself.
This component could be the new system or new setting. But it does not necessarily mean that you need to rely on the Hook. Players are jaded immediately and you need to have other Hooks just to get going.
A Hook should not always be available in the game’s first moments. Simply make it enough in your game.
Player Chaos (Creative Freedom)
In this component, players require freedom in the adventure. Even though most part of the adventure has been plotted out or static, give the players a room to do what they want. If they cannot, they might get bored or frustrated which eventually leads to destructive behavior.
The good design for adventure game should allow the players come up with a goal or direction. When there is an absence of freedom, there is no point in terms of tabletop roleplaying. Most players have been imaginative and clever. Thus, allow them to utilize it to enjoy your adventure game more. Provide a concrete goal and make them think. Never depend on any path of action or expected results. You can incorporate the Hook in it.
Ironically, a role playing adventure game can be more realistic and more consistent when you provided the players accurate Creative Freedom without putting expectation on the things they are going to work on.
Part Deux
This is more on structuring the adventure and you can do it naturally. There are various methods to structure your story. It is up to you on how you are going to divide your story into parts to make it more exciting and more interesting. After getting your Hook and giving your players with Creative Freedom, Part Deux will start. In this part, your make sudden changes, more different or bigger threats, unexpected or external event happenings and pace increases.
Part Deux can be compared to the twist in a story. However, this should not be your plot twist. In the first place, you might not fully understand what it means. But basically, this serves as the new element introduction. This can be a bad guy, consequence, plot, etc.
Part Deux has been different from the Hook. It is part wherein you may utilize your unique ideas. However, you might end up using only a portion of that idea, most especially when you had given your players enough Creative Freedom.
Group Cohesion/Direction
When designing your PC (player chaos), it would be quite easy and you may have your own adventure designed to accommodate PCs or even vice versa. In this aspect, you have to consider the group of PCs purposes. Identify what really bind them together preventing them for heading off and fracturing in various directions. These can be allies, sole survivors, family, friends, bound by plot link, trapped, etc. This actually based on the player himself if bonds could be created in-play or needed before play.
